Publishing/Books For Sale


Can we put a book back in print for you?

Tobermory Press publishes the Bruce Peninsula Press, the Bruce Peninsula Daytrip Companion and the Bruce Peninsula Telephone Directory.

That makes us specialists in printing large documents — books, magazines, reports, newspapers. Over the decades we have also designed and produced literally dozens of books and other large documents for other publishers.

Recently, Tobermory Press became a book publisher.

In 2010 we undertook an agreement with the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula to put the “Tobermory Book”, Hewers of  the Forests, Fishers of the Lakes, back in print. Under our agreement, the municipality retained the copyright for the book, but Tobermory Press handled publishing, warehousing and distributing it. This means that MNBP did not need a publishing budget, a book warehouse nor a book distribution clerk.

Do you have an out-of-print community or church history? Can we put it back in print for you?

Do you have a new book on the horizon? Call us!
